Steve James shares exciting new single “Trouble” ft. Not Famous
Ready to get yourself into some trouble? Grammy-nominated producer Steve James is sharing his deepest thoughts with the release of his new single “Trouble,” featuring vocals from Not Famous.
“Trouble” is an intimate single off of Steve’s forthcoming sophomore EP Bipolar. The epic track shares lyrics of broken emotions through Not Famous’ indie pop songwriting and Steve James dynamic house production and catchy bassline. You’ll love the enthusiastic and upbeat sounds.
Steve’s inspiration for the single and following EP comes from a difficult moment when he found out about his Bipolar 2 Disorder after a breakup. He was faced with a whirlwind of effects it brought to his life, some good and many bad. Matt (Not Famous) had also been through a difficult breakup and when he came to Steve with a few songs, “Trouble” immediately resonated. The team made a fantastic collab! The song became a perfect representation of what those initial weeks subsequent to their breakups were like, everywhere from the Bombay to the piercing pain of losing someone and clouding all happy memories from the relationship. Consequently, the song’s multiple layers and vocal arrangements complement the emotions pulsing through each lyric. The song’s rhythm and sound pick up and gain strength as each emotion is unwinded. Despite the sadness of the lyrics, the song is truly upbeat and catchy.
“The story of 2020 for me was really trying to understand who I am and why I am this way and embracing it, and what I ended up with is a really eclectic group of songs, “trouble” being the first of those.” -Steve James
